Everett girls perfect their game with successful results as they head down the home stretch

  The Everett High School volleyball team (6-11) won its sixth match of the year last Friday, Oct. 21, when they defeated visiting Pioneer Charter School out of Saugus, 3-0. It was the team’s lone encounter outside of the Greater Boston League.

  The Crimson Tide, led by senior setter Julie Miranda, was able to shut down its non-league counterparts. Miranda led the way with 19 service points, and senior outside hitter Sophia Sousa accounted for three aces and four kills. Junior middle hitter Nicole Brandao collected 11 kills, and sophomore defensive specialist Kayleigh McMahon made her varsity debut and did quite well as a starter, according to coach Michael Fineran.

  “Our focus all week long was on making better passes to the setter and taking more swings at the net, and we did both,” said Fineran. “We saw the results on what could happen while concentrating on those aspects of the game, and now we want to keep it up as we head into the final week of the season with two matches remaining on the regular season schedule.”
